Neiman’s Treats

So I’m sure you’ve all Pinned or at least seen pins of the famous $250 Neiman Marcus cookie.. you know this one? Or this one?

Neiman Marcus Cookie

Well I finally decided to give it a try, and test it out for myself!

Chocolate Chip Cookie

The recipe makes 112 cookies, and considering I shouldn’t have been eating them in the first place, I decided to cut the recipe in half.  Here is what I did:

Neiman Marcus Cookies

1 cup butter
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cups sugar
2 1/2 cups blended oatmeal (measure oatmeal and blend in a blender to a fine powder)
12 ounces chocolate chips
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 -8 ounce Hershey Bar (I only had a 1/5 oz. bar, so added more chocolate chips)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts (your choice, I like pecans and walnuts)

Directions:

  1. Cream the butter and both sugars
  2. Add eggs and vanilla
  3. Mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and baking soda
  4. Add chocolate chips, Hershey bar and nuts
  5. Use an ice cream scoop to ball dough onto cooking sheet (place two inches apart on a cookie sheet)
  6. Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees.

Consensus? It was a little more involved than a standard chocolate chip cookie and the end result wasn’t really worth it to me.  I may be a chocolate chip cookie purist, but the blended oats and grated chocolate bar didn’t really bring anything extra spectacular to the table for me.  If you love a soft cookie with some texture, this is for you… but if you are more into chewy/crispy cookies, these aren’t the ones for you.
